Remembrance Day commemorates the signing of the Armistice on November 11, 1918, signalling the conclusion of hostilities in World War I. The signing occurred at 11am on the outskirts of Paris, and at that time it was 6pm in Western Australia. Because of this, the Friends of ANZAC Cottage has timed its Remembrance Day service to occur at sunset (beginning at 5:30pm) on November 11.
This year, given the current issues with the pandemic, the theme for Remembrance Day will be the 1918/1919 Spanish flu as it affected Australia. Prior to the service there will be poppy making for children, the opportunity to hear the ANZAC Cottage story, guided tours of the Cottage and the Field of Remembrance will be on display for you to add a cross for your service man or woman.
Afternoon tea will be available for a gold coin donation.
